The smart tablet by Google
This powerful Google tablet manufacturer by Asus is one of the best tablets 7 inch tablets in market. The Nexus 7 first came in as a Wi-Fi only but they later released this cellular version. The cellular network is used for data connection only and you cant use it for calling or texting. It is a nexus device so you will always be running the latest android version as soon as it comes out. Also there are a lot of custom ROMs for this device if you dont really like the stock OS.
The device has got a good 7 inch IPS LCD display which replicates the colours very well and is very crisp. The text displayed on it is crisp and you would have to look very close to spot the pixels. The Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset is powerful and the processor has another core apart from the four to manage power and processes being handled by the four main cores. The device has got 32 GB onboard memory but there is no option to add more.
The camera is just 1.2 megapixels but you dont need anything more for video calling over the internet. It can also record videos in semi HD.
The connectivity options include 3G HSDPA up to 21 Mbps, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, NFC and micro USB 2.0.
This is a very good tablet available at an impressive price now. While the new Nexus 7 is being sold in other markets has got a full HD display and powerful processor, this one isnt exactly underpowered. The display makes it a great device for reading and personal media consumption and the reduced prices make it a great buy.
